Do we need stricter law enforcement around guns? Yes. Do we need better mental health resources for troubled and sick individuals? Yes, of course. But without the easy access to guns, those precious little ones would be home with their parents tonight. And those people in the theater in Colorado would be enjoying the holidays...and Gabby Giffords would be whole and healthy...and so many, many more. It must stop!
This is not an unsolvable problem. It can be solved with courageous resolve. You've taken on many worthwhile but controversial issues and you have done the right thing. If you decide to help restore common sense and intelligence to this issue, you will change the future.
Mr. President, we know where your heart is as a parent. Please! With all respect and admiration for you, sir, you can make the difference.
